It has been quite a while since the last time we had grilled wings. I would normally roast half a chicken for the hubby but all of a sudden, we had a craving for wings. BBQ wings would be great but then it involves too much work, setting up the charcoal grill would takes time so we settled for oven grill :) We went to collect a dozen pieces of chicken wings from our regular poultry supplier in the morning and have the wings marinated for half a day .
I marinated the wings with the Japanese soy sauce which I bought from Daiso , this soy sauce has achocol in it and it smells good and it is not salty, just right for my taste bud. So if you are a salty person, then you have to add a pinch of salt to the marinade. This is my first time trying out the soy sauce and I would say it is perfect as a marinade for the wings. The marinade is made of the Japanese soy sauce, raw honey, white pepper and a tsp of local thick soy sauce. The trick to a flavorful wings is to marinate the wings for at least half a day or best if overnight. I am happy with the result, the wings were flavorful and the skin turned out crispy and the wings were juicy on the inside ...very well grilled. I ate two when I intended to eat only one :p A simple and easy recipe, not much washing to do. I lined the tray with baking paper so that the drippings will drop onto the paper instead of the tray , which could make washing the tray difficult especially the burnt drippings :)
the steel skewers with rings are from Daiso too
the remnants of the marinade sauce can be used for basting the
wings at every 15 minutes interval.

which contains achocol making it non-halal
we like it because it is not salty and smells good
oven grilled wings are tasty too next best to bbq wings
Hubby likes the wings to have burnt bits :)
